Question about Reddy Heater-30-55,000 BTU Variable
If you hold the starter button in, it works fine. my guess is the thermocouple. How do you check it with a millivolt meter. The thermocouple also has two prongs for wires attached to it. Should there be about .030 volts in it? What are the two wire concectors for?
The thermocouple seems to be working fine. You should be getting around .025 volts-- I assume yours is rounding up as it should max out around .028 volts.
At this point you should check the relay- DESA states:
Thermocouple Turn off gas supply. Remove thermocouple from gas valve. Using a digital multi-meter set to the lowest DC millivolt setting (meter needs to have alligator clips on ends of leads), clip black lead to the very tip of thermocouple (end removed from valve). Clip red lead to the outer casing of thermocouple for ground. Relight unit output should be between 18 and 28 millivolts. Relay Turn off gas supply. Remove bottom of base (if equipped). Relay is a normally open circuit between terminals 4 and 6 which closes when current is supplied. Using a digital multi-meter measure the resistance. With no power to unit, resistance between terminals 4 and 6 is open circuit or no resistance. Apply power to relay. Resistance between terminals 4 and 6 should be less than 100 mili ohms.
